I would like to get a copy of the above probate file for my great great uncle Francis A Chapman (Frank). I tried unsuccessfully to get a copy directly from the court clerk and am hoping someone might be able to get me a copy or just transcribe this will for me.
Here is where i found the file #
Chapman, Frank (added) d. 10 Oct 1916 “The bride is a daughter of Frank Chapman, recently deceased, ... (Sept 7, 1917 Kucera-Chapman wedding in Odessa Record) “Frank Chapman.
